Encounter 1 A couple nights ago my gf was over. At around 2:30 AM she was getting ready to leave, so I was going to walk her to her car. We leave my room and start heading down the stairs (it's nearly pitch black). When we get to the bottom of the stairs, she instantly froze and said "do you see that"? I looked over to the living room, and about 10 ft away from us sorta hiding behind the sofa I see what looks like a dark shadow of a person. I cant really see any details, but it definitely looks like a person, and without being able to see a face it still looks like it is staring right at us. My gf then starts to freak out yelling at me to turn on the lights, then proceeds to run out the from door to her car. I chased after her, we sat in the car and talked for a minute, but she was too scared to talk about what had just happened. I know she was terrified because she is honestly scared of EVERYTHING. I'm actually surprised she would even acknowledge this by pointing it out. She's too scared to go on the ghost ride at disney land, or even watch "the house with the clock in its walls". Because of her fears, and the fact that I saw the same thing, I know what we saw is real. After she had calmed down, I walked back in the house to go to bed. She called me maybe 15 minutes later when she got home (her phone was dead) and asked me why I was standing at the door watching her and asked why I didn't move when she turned the light on and waved at me. (she ended up sitting in her car in front of my house for a few more minutes before leaving). I told her that I wasnt at the door, becasue I went straight back to my room, she started to panic again and said to look at my cameras and that we would talk tomorrow during the day when she felt more comfortable talking about it. I looked at the camera pointed at her car and what I saw was her car sitting there for a few minutes after i walked away, then she turned the interior lights on and gave a wtf guesture, turned the lights off, started to pull away, stopped again for about 30 seconds, then finally drove off. When we talked the next day, she said she thought she saw me standing at the door just watching her, and she thought it was me because she thought she saw the light reflecting off my glasses, so she turned on the light so i could she her and she could ask wtf I was doing since she couldnt call me because her phone was dead. Then she finally realized it wasnt me standing there, panicked and started to leave, but before leaving she stopped to look back at the door again and realized that there was nothing there before finally driving off. she also said she thought she saw something moving around her car. Encounter 2 Last night, when we got back to my house from a date we ended up sitting in the car for a little while talking because we were having a very interesing conversation. It was approximately 1AM when I noticed a strange shadow figure in the middle of the street out of the car mirror. I decided not to say anything about it becasue i didnt want to scare her. i pulled out my phone to look at my security cameras so I could get a better view without alarming her by looking around. when i finally got the cameras pulled up I looked around and noticed this figure sitting on the porch of the house across from mine. a few minutes later we both noticed this thing quickly move past the car. then occasionally we would notice it happen again. some time later she looked out of the mirror and saw it standing maybe 50 ft behind the car just watching us. when she looked away and looked back it would be gone. then we both saw it just walking across the street in front of the car. She was too scared to get out of the car to come inside at this point, so we just ended up driving back to her place. It was around 2:30 AM when we finally left. Questions I have never noticed anything like this until recently, and only ever seen it when she is here. we were both completely sober on both occasions, not tired or sleep deprived. I have lived in this house my whole life (25 years), my family were the original owners. the house is maybe 40 years old. Neither of us has ever messed with anything paranormal. I never even believed in this kind of stuff until now, and I wouldnt have believed her if I didnt see it for myself. I have no idea why this would be happening now. what could we be seeing? are we in danger? how do I make it go away? she is too scared to be at my house at night now, and I dont want whatever this is to ruin our relationship. do you think it is here for me or her? could it possible be trying to scare her away for some reason? what do you guys think it wants? What should I do in this situation? I have never dealt with anything like this before and i'm honestly really scared. Any information or help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.
